2015 Oscars & Vanity Fair Party Menswear Red Carpet Roundup

Oscar men

The men were out in force at the 2015 Oscars and the 2015 Vanity Fair Oscar Party, where there was plenty of handsome inspiration to go around from a fine group of fellows.

Jared Leto: Getting the evening started on a non-traditional note, the actor and musician was every bit the unorthodox Academy Awards dresser in his baby-blue Givenchy tux, accented by a white bowtie and white lug sole shoes. He let his hair down literally and made no excuses for it, saying that the Oscars was his going-away party for his locks. I wonder if the beard was also included in that party. While no one could pull this off like Jared, between the mane and the male pastels, this was verging on almost too much too handle.

Chris Pine: A stark contrast to Jared, Chris went for the all-out traditionally classic route and suited up in a Giorgio Armani black double-breasted peak-lapel tuxedo. It was impeccable and goes to show what transformative power a well-tailored tux can have.

David Oyelowo: Looking as if he was inspired by the red carpet itself, the ‘Selma’ actor dressed to impress in a crimson Dolce & Gabbana three-piece tuxedo word with #TackleEbola handcrafted pin by Jason of Beverly Hills. He does a great job pulling off this colour, yet I’m not completely sold on the satiny look of the vest and bowtie underneath.

2015 BAFTAs Menswear Roundup

BAFTA Men 1

The tuxes were out in force at the 2015 BAFTAs, hosted at The Royal Opera House on Sunday (February 8). Here, a look at the fine fellows on the red carpet.

David Beckham
: The always-handsome Becks wore an impeccable midnight-blue suit, well tailored and popped with a white pocket square and perfect bow tie. I love the added dimension of the deep indigo shade. He just wears clothes so well.

Tom Hiddleston: Looking suave, the actor wore a slim-fitting Alexander McQueen black tuxedo with a white evening shirt and black bow tie. Black onyx skull cufflinks added some subtle fashion edge to his classic outing.

Luke Evans: Also opting for a midnight-blue suit, Luke’s was an Ermenegildo Zegna piece, jazzed up with contrast black lapels and a black bow tie. He could have likely seen his reflection in his hyper-polished, patent shoes, in which case it should have told him that his pants were a fraction too slouchy.

2015 Critics’ Choice Movie Awards Menswear Roundup

2015 Critics' Choice Movie Awards Menswear Roundup

Here’s a quick roundup of the men who took to the red carpet for the 2015 Critics’ Choice Movie Awards held at the Hollywood Palladium on Thursday (January 15) in Los Angeles, California.

Eddie Redmayne: Giving just that little bit extra, which always sees him standing above his peers, the actor opted for a sharp Valentino shawl-collar tuxedo in his favoured slim-fit silhouette.

Jared Leto: Following the Globes, I was worried he had lost his mojo, but here he’s bursting with flavour. Standing out wearing a bright blue Costume National blazer accented with a pink carnation, you have to admire his courage in always doing something different. Thankfully opting for black trousers instead of going full blue, he did match his blazer to his sock with an extra kick coming from his Swarovski-embellished Louis Leeman loafers. On this occasion he swapped his man-braid for a man-bun.

Ethan Hawke: Yet to wear a black suit this awards season, the ‘Boyhood’ actor also stood out, donning a Lanvin light grey suit with black velvet piping. These top three will most definitely keep menswear interesting this awards season.

BDOTW 12 Jan

Stana Katic in Carolina Herrera was the readers favourite this week, plus the lovely Emma Stone in Lanvin and Emily Blunt in David Koma were inseparable in the poll this week.

Your best dressed male was Chris Evans in a dressy casual Gucci look.

My favourites were Emily Blunt in David Koma and I would never bet against Chris Hemsworth, who looked dashing in Dolce & Gabbana.

Menswear Red Carpet Roundup

Menswear 1 April

Across New York City, the men were out in force in support of two blockbuster films. Here, a glimpse at their looks.

Sebastian Stan: The Romanian actor was at the ‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier’ screening after party, hosted at The Jimmy at the James Hotel in New York City on Monday (March 31).  Working his own shades of grey, he paired the slight sheen of his suit with the shine of a long tie.

Chris Evans: Standing alongside Sebastian, Chris worked a Gucci blue pinstripe notch-lapel, two-button ‘Signoria’ suit with a light-blue dress shirt, printed tie and black leather lace-up shoes. His ensemble really enhanced his own baby blues.

Hugh Jackman: Joining Douglas Booth at the ‘Noah’ London premiere at the Odeon Leicester Square on Monday (March 31), Hugh was simply suave in a Burberry Tailoring dark charcoal suit, contrasted with a white button-down shirt, black tie and loafers.
